On our way to the orthodontist’s today, my 16-year-old son, Harry, and I stopped in at the grocery store to get some lunch and pick up some sandwich fixins. Quick visit to the deodorant since we were both out, meandered around the end, and stumbled into the Axe display, and it had something on it called snake peel? Well, we finally figured out that’s the new name for their new shower gel, snake peel. Whatever. We had a couple of minutes there where we thought that was the new name of one of their scents. ‘Tis a shame it wasn’t.
As I was meandering off, Harry picked up the Axe Unlimited and hit me on the back with an Axe spritz. You know, like Axe was a weapon of some sort. As we walked over to the deli, me with my Axe wound on my back, I realized how true that is.
From the Axe Effect website — “When you wear your favorite scent of Axe shower gel, body spray, anti-perspirant or deodorant on any of your male hot zones (a.k.a. your body), your new and improved male musk is released into the atmosphere, quickly reaching nearby females. This is exciting, as quasi-scientific research has proven women like men who smell good.”
Based on my quasi-scientific nose, having to wear that crap on my back for the better part of the day, I do agree that women like men who smell good, but this isn’t one of those things that I would classify as smelling good in a way that would be improving the male musk or the feminine ardor. My oldest son bought the hype of this stuff and wore Axe for a while. Seems like a lot of young men have. You know, a good personality, sense of humor and a dash of Hermes Bel Ami would work so much better. Review summary: Should be used only when you’ve been sweating all day, can’t get into a shower and need emergency smell care for the ten minutes it will take you to get home and wash that crap off never.
Am I the last person on the face of the earth to discover Grey’s Anatomy? What a great show. I hate Dr. McDreamy. Guy pursues girl when he is not even divorced, then keeps longing for her. Cute, but a creep, the kind of guy you definitely don’t want your daughter ever running into. George, on the other hand is seriously hot, but this hairdo? No, no, no, you can never get your hair cut like that again. That is hideous and still sorta hot in a more kinky way.
Can we talk about Lost just briefly? I know I really shouldn’t be watching this show off and on and then watch the finale, but WTF? The Pearl hatch was studying the other hatch, but it turns out the Pearl hatch was really the fake hatch, and then it blew up via magnetic kaboom, except maybe it didn’t and what is up with Libby? Is she behind all of this?
And go look at this page and tell me the results aren’t rigged. Clay Aiken is the top search on E! Online, and Elliott Yamin has 78% of the vote in the “Which American Idol runner-up’s album would you buy.” Elliott had some pipes, at least for the 10 seconds I stayed awake and listened when he came on. Yawn. Clay Aiken?!?!? And what was with his hair on Wednesday? Dis-as-ter.
Perfume? Oh, yeah, sorry! Comment here and let me know you’d like to be in the drawing for a sample of Plus que Jamais and Sous le Vent. I’ll have my dog, Buddy, help me get a winner from the entries and announce the winner next week sometime, probably Wednesday!
